Fun Ways To Burn 150 Calories

burn_caloriesEvery fitness activity, such as walking or jogging, burns calories, but some burn more per minute than others. And the more intense the pace, regardless of the activity, the faster you’ll burn those calories. Finally, your burn rate is affected by your weight — the more you weigh, the more you’ll burn in the same amount of time. Here are popular fitness activity choices using a base weight of a person weighing 150 pounds and the average amount of time it takes to burn 150 calories. (Values are approximate)
